Pushkey is the approach taken by the projrc extension and it shows that
it's possible to write this as an extension.

Like Angel, I would like to see some core mechanism for distributing
config settings. It need not be the way projrc does it -- since it was
written as an extension, it (ab)uses the pushkey concept and it also
hooks into some low-level stuff to inject the settings.

Having better support for that in core would simplify the projrc
extension and perhaps make it possible to write a small extension for
distributing what you call "schemas" in case the full (and somewhat
scary) projrc functionality isn't needed.
